Take it back for real

Summary: Have you ever encountered in a situation where what you wanted to say wasn’t actually what you really wanted to share? But you still did anyway? That is often the case with text messages, through the phone and its different channels of communication, even social media too. Could there be any way of stopping ourselves to avoid it? Probably, but the chances of doing it are too high nevertheless… so what if we could “unsend” what we just sent? Whatsapp had the right

Have you ever encountered in a situation where what you wanted to say wasn’t actually what you really wanted to share? But you still did anyway? That is often the case with text messages, through the phone and its different channels of communication, even social media too.

Could there be any way of stopping ourselves to avoid it? Probably, but the chances of doing it are too high nevertheless… so what if we could “unsend” what we just sent?

Whatsapp had the right idea

.

The chat application has decided to work on a way for users to remove the message they just send not only from their end but also the receiver’s phone too. Of course, only before they get a chance to read it.

This is basically a way to prevent embarrassing moments that mistakes and emotions can give us when we want to deliver a message, so giving control to users on their own content is an interesting take that make us wonder what extent could exist for the capacity of communications. No matter how big or small the channels are.

Short memory term

This feature was announced earlier at February of this year and its beta has already been tested for launch, it’s going to be part of the new pack of updates Whatsapp has on store right now. It will be available first for iOS then Android (there’s still not a clear date), and before it was part of Whatsapp’s web version for the beta test.

The update came along with certain initial limitations, the modifications of the sent message can be done in the time of 5 minutes after pressing the sent button, or be completely unsent; all this advancements came to be at the opening of this year.

The plan is to make it optional, so people are not obliged to apply it with the update since it is understandable that it could get annoying if it’s automatized for that; but probably is going to be added in along with a turn on/off button.

Take it back for real

Besides the unsend option, people will get the chance of sharing live messages adapted to the changes you do in real time fashion, with a limit of time of course. It presents a similar action to Snapchat’s stories.

That will be possible by sharing your live location in the satellite.

And to finish with glittered gold, Whatsapp is letting everyone in over its growth with the update that erases the need of typing commands and certain special characters in order to apply things to your text like bold text or italic, for example; there will be now a series of shortcuts for it.

The new encryption within Whatsapp interface will endure the experience of all the users community; the trials and beta tests for each feature have proven effectively as a viable update pack that will be introduced with the OS of both Apple and Android smartphones this year. This will cement the road for many new updates that the company has been working on to prepare people for the next generation of media that is coming soon.
